I will be attending the National Association of Writers in Education Conference from November 11-13 in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the home of the bard!
Check out the full, exciting programme here.
On Saturday November 12th, I’m presenting a paper titled “Hand-written journaling in the digital age.”
This is the programme blurb:
Digital technology has become a norm in our lives. A study by the American Press Institute in 2015 found that 88% of Millennials get news from Facebook. Social media has become a primary form of acquiring information, and people are increasingly shifting from the tactile experience of reading a physical book or writing by hand. In this paper, I investigate how the amalgamation of digital tools and technology can indeed aid, enhance, and even encourage the tactile experience of writing by hand, and impact the art and practice of journaling for personal development.
If you are attending the conference, do be sure to say hi. I look forward to meeting you.
